It rained buckets last night. My next door neighbor Judy said it was 5" in her gauge. I don't know how much it was; I do know it came down fast and hard enough to wash part of the hillside down onto my brick walks. I went out this morning to take pictures because there are more thunderstorms forecast for this afternoon - actually for the next five days. It could be worse - the farmers are really hurting.
The darker roses are William Baffin, the small single is Nearly Wild. The double pink rose is one single plant that is enormous. I've tried to I.D. it because it obviously loves my conditions, even posted pictures on a garden sites. Those old rose people are as wacko and opinionated as the old bicycle people, but still didn't come up with anything definitive.
